I think all that really matters is how Canon classify their lens lineup where my point is that if the rumor is 100% accurate as to what Canon call a telephoto lens, it will be in a limited select group.
But if you want to stick a feather in your cap and call it macaroni, please feel free...it is the national holiday coming up here.

CR3 makes this near real...right?

Real.  Just like aliens.

Aliens are real; the people who report seeing them, but consistently fail to get high-quality photos/video, despite the near-ubiquity of adequate-quality recording equipment, are not.   :P
Alien spaceships travel by projecting a tiny black hole in front of them and use the gravitational attraction to accelerate their spaceships. These micro black holes cause the space-time continuum to warp, and that warping disrupts the flow of photons.... and that is why all photos of flying saucers are blurred....

That makes perfect sense, and it certainly implies that sasquatch emanate black holes in their musk or flatus, which is why their pictures are always so blurry.

Any speculations on what *else* the lens could be if not the 100-400L successor?
...
Knowing my luck, it'll be another 400mm f/5.6 prime...

Actually, I'm praying for a 400mm f/5.6 prime with IS, but I'm expecting a new 100-400L. If it exceeds the quality of the current 400mm prime at 400mm, then that works for me.

That makes sense.

Thanks for clarifying.

<p>We’ve been told that NDA/embargo will expire in September for the Canon EOS 7D replacement as well as a new telephoto lens.</p>
<p>Photokina starts on September 16, 2014. So I suspect the embargo date will either be Tuesday, September 9, 2014 or Friday, September 12, 2014. The EOS 5D Mark III was announced on a Friday.</p>
<p>We weren’t given any specs at the time of writing this, or what the new telephoto lens would be. I think everyone is hoping for an EF 100-400 replacement.</p>
<p><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">c</span>r</strong></p>



More likely it will be announced on Monday 15, with the official unveiling at an event on the Wednesday.

I'm thinking a slightly different recipe for the telephoto...200-400 f/5.6 sans the built in converter obviously.

Was chatting to a few of the guys I know who predominantly shoot wildlife and very few use focal lengths shorter than 200mm.

And yes, if the performance at 400mm is better than that of my beloved 400mm f/5.6, I may just upgrade :D

Dunno why I'm sitting here trying to image how Brian will review a lens I just conjured up in my mind?!

No point over analyzing this. It is time and 7D2 (with exactly that name) and same sensor size will be announced. And I suspect it will be readily available as Canon will not repeat the 1DX and 200-400 availability delays. I hope I am not wrong in any of the baseless claims I am making… :)

Now I'm in situation where I have good discount on 70D until the end of July. But I'm really curious about 7D II specs and price, I'm not sure if there is a good reason to wait...
I hope we will have some specs until the end of July.

The rumor says:

"new telephoto lens"

which could easily mean a telephoto lens design that currently doesn't exist as well as an update of one that does.

Why not announce a new APS-C telephoto lens with a new APS-C camera?

because there is no point in an aps-c telephoto

If there is no point in an APS-C telephoto then why does the EF-S 55-250 exist?

CR3 makes this a real possibility. Better Dynamic Range and Dual pixel focus with swivel screen like the 70D makes
the 7D ll a possible purchase for me. I really am impressed with some of my pics taken with my 7D so will wait till
the reviewers declare the 7D ll a necessary upgrade. :)

Because going as wide as 70mm on a crop camera is still quite tele, putting the lens out of general use for many people. 55mm at the wide end makes it more of an all round tele zoom for crop users.

Once you drop much below around 70mm in focal length, there are packaging and cost advantages to a smaller imaging circle than FF.

A 70-xxx, 100-xxx or 200-xxx has somewhere in the region of a 1% weight and size saving with the reduced rear element size required for the EF-S imaging circle - the lens elements further forwards are all identical in size. So why not just make such a lens FF compatible, and therefore sell it for less due to increased sales?

At least now we know when the forums will be flooded with people complaining
I for one am disgusted that the new camera does not include an integrated popcorn maker and cheese grater.
(just trying to beat the rush)  :o ;D ;)
Your expectations are very low ... along with the "popcorn maker and cheese grater" I also want an integrated coffee maker. ;D :D
You guys are really missing it - what you really want is the kitchen sink - which is the only thing missing from the 1D X ;D

Lol...the sink and a QXD card slot  ;D

Canon lens classification is very specific.

Telephoto is a designation that includes 135 to 300 mm non-zoom lenses.

It does not include anything else.

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/ef_lens_lineup

My wild guess is an Image Stabilized 135mm f/2 for want of any better idea.


The URL you've provided lists several telephoto zoom lenses, including the EF-S 55-250mm & EF 100-400mm.
